Safety, Safety, Safety

At OSCARS we take our responsibilities extremely seriously.

All aspects of risk are considered, including risk benefits, and quite simply we insist on the highest standards.

Our locations and facilities have been carefully chosen with safety as a prime consideration. Risk assessments are carried out weekly and daily for every aspect of the services that we offer.

Our services are registered with The Care Inspectorate and OFSTED where appropriate.

The skill and enthusiasm of our staff is one of the main ingredients of our success over the past 26 years.

OSCARS ensure they are appropriately qualified as stipulated by the relevant regulatory bodies.

All staff undertake:

  • a detailed recruitment process
  • a theoretical and practical orientation
  • regular training and development

They have many years of experience of operating stimulating programmes and delivering high-quality services.

Our holiday programme staff teams are a mix of childcare professionals, graduate and undergraduate teachers.

As well as teaching professionals, we welcome people who have specific artistic or sporting skills and qualifications.

Their ability to relate to and motivate children and teenagers is second to none.

Ratios vary according to the age and size of groups but never exceed an average of 8 children for any staff member.

Thank you so much for a splendid service at Hutchesons’ Glasgow. My kids love OSCAR, and will miss OSCARS loads. We will definitely get back in touch for booking summer holidays. Thank you so much.

With a mix of kids from different primary schools and varying ages, it’s lovely seeing them all play and talk together. My children always come away happy!

The staff are popular with the children and can be relied on by parents. They are also flexible and happy to help with adhoc short notice requests for help.
